The news and weather sites were all warning about a huge storm with large hail, and potential for tornadoes yesterday. I wanted to be prepared, so I secured the yard the best I could, hiding plants and the fire pit under the carport, and moving some stuff into the garage.
I cooked up a warm and hearty dinner, perfect for staying in on a scary, stormy evening. Luckily the storm never came, but the dinner was still good!
We enjoyed this pasta recipe from Pioneer Woman's site, made with shrimp and a rose sauce. On the side was roasted broccoli tossed with s&p, olive oil, and garlic before roasting for 25 minutes. I then tossed it with fresh lemon juice, zest, a touch more olive oil, Parmesan cheese and basil.
A sprinkle of Parmesan, just for good measure ...
We also ate some of this Mediterranean-style bread from the Lakeshore Sobeys, which is officially the bread I am buying from now on - soooooo good! We dipped it in olive oil and balsamic.
It was also excellent toasted for breakfast this morning. A couple pieces with avocado and sea salt, and the others with Laughing Cow cheese, tomatoes and fresh basil.
What do you like to eat on a rainy evening inside?
